Sumerian King List
One of the most stunning and shocking discoveries in the records of historical archaeology is known as the Sumerian King List. It is taught in academics that the ancient Sumerians were the first civilizations of man. What is not commonly taught is that this ancient culture created a set of documents, set in clay tablets, archiving a known history of early earth. These cuneiform clay tablets have been deceitful with dealing the secret that has shaken the foundations of our knowledge of early earth. These clay tablets known as the Sumerian King’s List have been dated to 2100 B.C, which is over 4000 years ago. The real shock to these treasure is not the age of the very sophisticated writing but the content of that writing. Among other things, the king’s list is a list of kings but divided in two. There is a king’s list that ruled before the global flood and there is the king’s list that ruled after the global flood. Now, this is shocking evidence of the world-wide global flood mentioned outside the biblical book of Genesis.
What is more striking is the king’s list prior to the flood lived many years(over thousands of years) longer than the king’s list after the global flood. This is consistent with the book of Genesis. But what is perhaps even more revealing in this way, as the list of Sumerian kings described is the global flood of Genesis itself. It has been translated this way “after the flood swept over the earth when the kingship again was lowered from heaven, here it is the Sumerian Kings list, a record retrieved from the first post-flood civilization, documenting the actual history that took place on earth and backing up the Genesis record.”
“After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug. In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years. Alaljar ruled for 36000 years. 2 kings; they ruled for 64800 years.”
